“How do you make it so it’s not just about the music, but it’s also a portrait of the man? I think that’s one of things that makes the film work, and makes the film so fascinating, because Miles was such a fascinating character, as a man, outside of his music.” - Stanley Nelson, director of MILES DAVIS: BIRTH OF THE COOL, talking about his approach to telling Davis’ story.
